Chad Billlingsley’s sore elbow flared up again Friday.
Billingsley left the game against the Marlins with one out in the fourth inning, with what the Dodgers termed a tender elbow.
He had previously been on the 15-day disabled list with a sore elbow. Since returning July 23, he had won six consecutive starts before Friday.
Aggravating the elbow a second time has to be of greater concern to the Dodgers.
It could be a good thing they included right-hander Josh Beckett in that proposed blockbuster deal with the Red Sox for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.
